Learning and KM: Separated at birth?

Jay Cross

T wo years ago, DevLearn and KM World took place simultaneously in downtown San Jose. I sensed that learning and knowledge management were converging and invited bloggers form both sides to get together at the Tidehouse to share viewpoints and guzzle beer. KM World 2009 is next week. I’ll be in Hope, Arkansas; Washington, DC; and Barcelona during KM World this year, so I’ll miss the show. Corporate learning and KM are both about getting the job done.

User Profiles: Spanning Structural Holes

ID Reflections

Leaving something as crucial as this to chance meetings at social events can no longer be an option if organizations want to remain sustainable. Many forward looking organizations have already embraced the idea of social business (I will leave that for another post) and invested in high-potential enterprise collaboration and learning platforms. In case, the expertise does not exist, it’s time to leverage one’s personal learning network.

The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

In my recent webinar I shared a slide that showed the 5 stages of workplace learning. This has attracted a lot of interest, and I’ve been asked to talk more about the differences between “learning” in Stages 1-4 and Stage 5.

So whilst e-business is about automation, social business is about innovation.

How to Stay on Top of Training Demand? Know the Alternatives

Mindflash

As a learning and development professional, I have often struggled with the question, “how can we keep up with the constant and increasing need for learning and demand for training?&# Organizations of all sizes are moving so fast, that as soon as we finish learning something new about products, customers, a change in the competitive landscape, or how to use a new software system, something new comes along to replace it. New learning is once again needed.

Retaining Your Company’s Knowledge through eLearning

TalentLMS

As a business organization, operating to improve and diversify assets, you may be wondering how on earth did an asset become: A. In short, as a dedicated business professional, you believed you had invested enough time, efforts and money to create eLearning courses to generate knowledge within your organization that would in turn bring in profits. As with any business activity or process, we go back to your organization’s goals.

The 'learner' fallacy - delusions of influence in L&D

Learning Rocks

Perhaps because it spends so much time alongside the diversity hounds of the HR department, or in the company of the mind-benders of NLP, the 'Training Department' has seen the change to 'Learning & Development' and is obsessed with its 'learners'. More than enough type has been devoted recently to discussions on the (in)validity of learning styles, but let me add another thought to the mix.
